Le Masque is the very first French publisher who focused on crime fiction. Famous for being the publisher of the iconic Agatha Christie, the Le Masque paperback collection has become the reference for crime novels. The large format catalog has been recently enriched with the cosy crime category represented by the Sophie Hannah series, with the return of Hercule Poirot, as well as authors like Jessica Fellowes, Richard Osman and Ali Rebeihi (Tante Alice enquête). It also boasts such world renowned authors as Philip Kerr and Ian Rankin alongside the younger generation with Joseph Knox and Cay Rademacher. Le Masque has renewed its French catalog with the noir novels of Louise Mey and talented author of thrillers, Nicolas Lebel, already winner of the Livre de Poche readers award.
